Kalligraphia 2004

Lethbridge AB

August 19, 20,21, 2004

What a wonderful group of students! They burned the midnight oil and were back in class early the next morning. Whenever I got near the classroom in off hours, I could hear voices and the heat gun working!

All their books were well on their way to their fabulous completion by the time the class was over. I would have loved to take all the books home with me! Well done Alterlings!

The Happy Alterers

l-r, back row: Aline (Ontario), Jan (Vancouver), Heidi (Calgary), Mary (Calgary), Barry (Calgary)
l-r, seated: Lauren (Winnipeg), Ardie (Minneapolis)

Here is Aline and her book. She had fun with the foiling pen and did some wonderful stitching where she attached decorated gang tags into her AB.

Ardie's book became a metaphor for her lifes journey, finishing with lots of colour and "Discovery" cut in letters out of many pages.

Barry began his altered book by wanting to have just a sampler of techniques. It didn't take long for him to have a theme! It's a book dedicated to his wife's garden.

Heidi discovered her pages were a bit too slick for comfort, but she overcame it very well and experimented with a lot of new things in the process!

Jan has some fabulous pages in her book, which I didn't photograph for some reason - sorry Jan! She has some amazing layouts and 3D things going on.


Lauren's book was a garden book.
It became a book about her family being the garden she tends.


Mary had a very colourful cover on her book which she acquired on a trip to Thailand. When she decided she wanted a photo of some stone carvings in her cover window, some fabulous altering took place!
